AIRPORT CITY, Israel, Sept. 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- OriginGPS, the global market leader in small-format GNSS and IoT modules, teamed with partners; Friendly Technologies, a leading IoT and TR-069 device management company, and Humavox, an innovative wireless charging expert, to create an IoT-connected baseball. Friendly's IoT platform interfaces the OriginIoT to enable communication, management and GUI, while Humavox's compact Wi-Fi-charging bowl re-energizes the system.
The OriginIoT effectively resolves inherent costly issues to IoT developments; namely long project cycles and required embedded software expertise. It expedites development cycles, and eliminates the need for embedded coding and RF engineering, resulting in substantial cuts in development resources. With OriginGPS' superior cellular-GNSS integrated in the IoT cellular system, this smart baseball is a proof of concept for rapid and accessible IoT development.
"We are excited to provide Friendly Technologies' IoT platform to facilitate IoT services for this novel demo, and to connect the multiple sensors of the OriginIoT to an intuitive GUI for data analytics," said Ohad Oman, Friendly's VP Product Management. Friendly's One-IoTTM platform enables service providers to manage the data and configuration of millions of devices on a single platform, accelerating deployment and streamlining IoT service management, while cutting operational costs.
ETERNA® wireless charging technology is based on RF waves resonating in a shielded cavity, and was built from the ground up to transform wireless charging into a seamless experience for users ("drop & charge"). We are happy to collaborate with OriginGPS and to accelerate the adoption and growth of wearables and IoT globally," added Omri Lachman, Humavox Co-Founder and CEO.
"We are proud to team up with Friendly Technologies and Humavox for this initiative. The demo presents partners' capabilities to swiftly interface solution elements, while the OriginIoT enables connectivity to multiple entities, forging the way to fast and affordable IoT developments," summarized Robert van Tilburg, OriginGPS' VP Global Sales and Business Development.
OriginGPS will be presenting its GNSS and IoT modules at CTIA MWC 2017, San Francisco, USA, September 12-14, Embedded Works booth, Hall North Stand N.609.
OriginGPS develops integrated, miniaturized GNSS and IoT solutions with the smallest footprint on the market for verticals, such as smart cities, drones, asset tracking, wearables, automotive, and IoT.
